COVID-19 Vaccine-What You Need To Know

 

                           Check Your Eligibility

Vaccines are available at pharmacies, hospitals and through local health departments statewide – please contact your provider of choice to schedule your vaccine appointment.

Additionally, there is a network of State-run sites distributing vaccine statewide – to determine eligibility and schedule appointments at New York State-run vaccination sites only visit the Am I Eligible app.

SEE IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE 

Successful completion of the Am I Eligible App does not guarantee you access to a vaccine.

As New York State receives additional allocations from the Federal Government, more New Yorkers will be eligible and the Am I Eligible App will be updated. You can recheck your eligibility at any time.

You must bring proof of eligibility to your appointment. This may include an employee ID card, a letter from an employer or affiliated organization, or a pay stub, depending on the specific priority status. If you are eligible because of your age, bring a government-issued ID that includes your date of birth (like a Driver’s License or passport).

 

Process and Immune Response

Both the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines require two shots.

Immunity

Researchers do not yet know how long immunity after vaccination lasts. That’s why you must continue to wear a mask, wash your hands regularly and social distance.

Potential Side Effects after the Vaccination

You may not notice any changes in how you feel after getting the shot. But it’s also possible to feel a little “under the weather.” This can happen after any vaccine. It is the body’s immune response to getting vaccinated and a sign that the vaccine is starting to work.
After the COVID-19 vaccine, you may have:

  • A sore arm where you got the shot
  • A headache
  • Chills
  • Fever
  • Tiredness

Over the counter pain relievers and fever reducers may help.
You should feel better in a day or two. If you still don't feel well after two or three days, talk to your health care provider.
